Kum Nang Kruan: Episode 13
Aww, this episode is all about tears. I think Mo does a good job emotionally. The confessing scene is so sad and makes me sueng. Like dang he loves her that much? Must be painful to marry someone he doesn’t love and probably will never love.
Dararai is in deep thought while Yordlah warns Dararai to put on a shawl because Dararai might get sicker. Yordlah wants to know what Dararai is thinking. Dararai teases that she’s looking out the window in case she might see Luang Thepakdee. She also heard that Luang Thep visits Yordlah quite often at the waterfront pavilion. Yordlah half heartedly denies that he doesn’t visit everyday but sometimes he comes late at night. Yordlah shows Dararai her engagement gold bracelet and ask if it’s beautiful? Dararai says it is beautiful and doesn’t match her. Wearing the canine necklace is enough for her.
Dararai thinks back to the time Luang Thep and her discuss about the stars. Luang Thep thinks tonight is beautiful but Dararai says when the moon shines bright it makes other stars pale in comparison. Luang Thep disagrees because nothing will shine brighter than the star in his heart. Nothing will be able to block that Which makes Dararai blush.
Dararai hears Yordlah playing a new song And follows the music to the pavilion. At the water pavilion Luang Thep admires Yordlah’s talents in music. He compliments that when she plays at the river it really feels like the water is flowing. Yordlah asks what about the music she just plays? Luang Thep smiles and sit up to gaze at the stars. He says it reminds him of the sky tonight. The star is sparkling and at times it blinks, and it shines so bright. It is a very naughty star. Yordlah praises him for being such a good judge at music.
Yordlah introduces Dararai as her sister. Luang Thep inquires if her name means a beautiful sparkling star? Yordlah answers that it could translate into something like that. Luang Thep hurt, but mocks her if he should call her Jao Nang Rai in short? Yordlah speaks on behalf of Dararai again that sometimes their father would call her Jao Dara but she calls Dararai’s full name. Dararai counters back if people call him Pak? Yordlah again answer on behalf of everyone that Dararai can call him Pe’Thep like Yordlah does. Dararai doesn’t want to call him that because he might want only Yordlah to call him Pe’Thep.
Luang Thep discusses with Klah that Jao Nang Dararai is Yordlah’s sister. He doesn’t know what to do. Klah suggests if he could marry both sister. He calls Klah crazy because even if he could he wouldn’t want to. Klah reminds luang Thep that to retract his engagement with Yordlah is going to be difficult. The engagement is huge between two big leader.
Dararai’s closest servants are shocked to hear that Pak is Luang Thep. They worry that the prediction will come true. Dararai refuses to let the prediction be true. She loves her sister and Yordlah also loves her. She will never hurt Yordlah since Yordlah already gives all of her heart to Luang Thep. But the servants says that she loves him and he loves her. Dararai says the one she loves is Jao Pak. The servants tells her not to lie to herself. As for Luang Thep’s heart, they don’t know what he thinks. Maybe his heart is like the heaven that only has the moon shining on it and no place for the stars.
Anyways, the Khun luang enjoys some entertainment with their family. Luang Saen In hears that Yordlah created a new song. Yordlah admits to it but says that the lyrics are written by Luang Thep. Her father wants to hear her new song. So, she plays it for them. The lyrics is for Dararai.
Yordlah isn’t happy that her mother and servants are badmouthing Dararai as a jealous person. They warn her to be careful of luang Thep and Dararai. They don’t want her to be nice to Dararai. Look, even Dararai disappear and doesn’t even help prepare her wedding. Yordlah says the reason why Dararai disappears becaus she’s helping with the food. As for Luang Thep and Dararai, they hardly see each other. When they do they only exchange little words to each other.
We see Dararai preparing to find food with the servants in the forest. She’s also thinking how it must be punishment because in the past she killed so many animals. She doesn’t know how many animals she separate from their mates.
Dararai goes on to think alone and cries her heart out. Luang Thep actually comes and talk to Dararai. They call each other by their name when they were at the forest. But Dararai says she calls his name wrong. In truth, she should call him “brother-in-law”. He gets mad at her and counter back that he is not her brother-in-law yet. She sarcastically says to him that he must be counting down for the day. He says who is actually the one that is counting down for that day? If it’s up to him he would want to postpone it for as long as he can. She tells him he can’t do that. He confesses his love for her. He marrying to Yordlah is only for duty. When Dararai disappears he looked every where for her. It is only he can’t find her that he finally agrees and just do his duty getting engaged to Yordlah. Now that he found her he wants to marry her. He will tell his father to retract the engagement with Yordlah to marry her. She tells him not to do that because her sister loves him with all her heart. He says that he tries to study Yordlah if he could love her. He tries to see if he could give half of his love that he has for Dararai to Yordlah. But now that he sees Dararai, he knew that he never loved Yordlah nor could ever love her. She says that Yordlah has a good heart and one day he will love her with all his heart. She sends him away.
Klah reminds Luang Thep that his wedding is the day after tomorrow. Luang Thep still have hopes that he still have one and a half day to convince Dararai. Klah then tells Luang Thep if he ever heard of the prediction that the two Jao nang will fight for the same man and become enemy?
Luang Thep goes to ask Dararai about this prediction. She informs him that he is mistaken about the prediction. Even if there is no prediction, she still stands by her words that she doesn’t love him. He assures that even if there is a prediction and she sworn already, Dararai is not the one stealing because all his heart is given to her. She tells him to go back because tomorrow is his big day. He says that tomorrow is the day she sends him to his marriage life.
Yordlah comes to take Dararai back to the koom because she has to be the bridesmaid. At first Dararai is a bit harsh when Yordlah approaches her. She thinks that it is still luang Thep. But her excuse is that her servants won’t leave her alone.
Yordlah meets Luang Thep coincidentally at the pavilion and asks why he is there at this time. He says the place makes him feel better. She wants to know what he is thinking. The servants tease that maybe he is in a hurry to get married tomorrow. They talk poetic hahah. Which I will not attempt to translate. But anyway, he says something like he will leave the past behind and starts anew tomorrow. She says that he will be her sun to guide her to a new life. And she will be the moon that shines with him. He says that one day, perhaps her star will shine in his heart. She is happy to hear that. Yordlah wants to play music to the people who works hard for their wedding. He says she’s has such a pure heart. But she tells him Dararai might feel annoy due to the noise. Luang Thep is surprise she mention Dararai when he thought Dararai is still in the forest. Yordlah says she went to pick Dararai up.
Dararai tells Kru Babsri that after today will be tomorrow which is the wedding. When she doesn’t see her sister and Luang Thep anymore, the prediction will not come true. He says that anything is not as powerful as having karma. What goes around comes back around. She says what if she created karma from her last life? How do she get rid of that? He teaches her not to create anymore karma, and do only good things, that will balance out the karma in her past life. If she wants to get rid of all her karma is not hard but only some people can do it. She says it doesn’t matter how hard, she will be able to do it. He tells her not to be sad because whatever happens will happen. She has to face it with consciousness and fight it with goodness.
Luang Thep decides to break all rules and laws and sneak into Dararai’s room. She tells him what he is doing is wrong. He knew and the result is he would have to marry her in return. She thinks he’s crazy because he has to only married her sister. He says because she doesn’t love him? She confirms she will never love him too.
She tries to make him leave but he won’t. If she doesn’t love him then why is she wearing the necklace? She wears it not for him but for Sanjoy who is a friend. He asks didn’t she wear it to remind of him? How different from him who keeps her knife with him so that it wouldn’t distant from him. She says that’s his business, it has nothing to do with her. She doesn’t love him so it is only his thinking alone? She says yes and tomorrow is his wedding. He says tonight is not over yet. He is a bachelor. He still loves her with all his heart. She tells him it’s up to him but from tomorrow onward he only loves her sister. She doesn’t love him. He says if that is the truth then she should look in his eyes and tells him she doesn’t love him. Say it to his face but she has to know that he loves her more than anything in his life. She can’t deny loving him with that kind of confession! She finally says she loves him too. After hugging him, she tells him to go back and do right by his duty. He should love and care for her sister. He asks about her heart? She says she can endure it but she will never hurt her sister. The prediction will never come true. that moment, her father comes in and says “what prediction?” Her father wants to know the whole story! Snaps!
